Evaluation of Holographic Imaging Cytometer HoloMonitor M4® Motility Applications

Cytometry Part A, 2018 | Y. Zhang and R. L. Judson

The HoloMonitor software modules for cell tracking and wound healing analysis were evaluated and compared to the more conventional methods transwell migration and transwell invasion. Both HoloMonitor modules were found to be well-correlated with established standards, yielded reproducible results, and at the same time offered distinct advantages. The wound healing assay was the most tractable and automated method with good reproducibility, while the cell tracking module enabled identification of hypermobile subpopulations.

Combined activation of MAP kinase pathway and β-catenin signaling cause deep penetrating nevi

Nature Communications, 2017 | I. Yeh et al.

HoloMonitor was used to measure cell volume. Together with other methods the results identify DPN (deep penetrating nevus) as an intermediate melanocytic neoplasm, with a progression stage positioned between benign nevus and DPN-like melanoma.
